The smoky, woody, musty sweet Cyprian latakia is the main component. The earthy, dark fruity, Virginias also sport a very light citrus and grassiness as supporting players. The nutty, earthy, woody, lightly molasses sweet burley plays just below that level, though at times, it offers some competition to the Virginias, and will be a tad more noticeable. The spicy, plumy, raisiny perique is an important condiment. The strength is medium and the taste is just past the center of medium to full. The nic-hit is closer to medium than it is to mild. Won’t bite or get harsh, but the spice content may tingle the tongue of a fast puffer. Burns clean and slightly warm with a little inconsistency in the richly sweet, spicy, savory flavor. Leaves little moisture in the bowl and requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasant, mildly lingering campfire after taste. Not quite an all day smoke. Two and a half stars due to the inconsistent taste.
